Loved Cal Expo, the smallest venue on Tour... We set up for stealth FOB Center for these Shows because... well my tapes sounded better.
Notes: Band Sound issues beginning Long Way to go Home.

Subject: FOB & 24/48 heaven!
This was the first night, of which many have previously stated was the Dead's final great run of their illustrious career. I will not jump onto that bus but the music does the talking and Jerry raged every night and played with a fierceness that does support that position.
This tape was circulated in a taping co-op that I was a happy member of for over three years. I was lucky to have first generations of many of these west coast FOBs from '92-95.
This night is a keeper and the beauty of these FOBs is you really get the true presence of what it was truely like during these shows when sitting about 25 to 50 rows back from the stage. Phil is so clear and loud you might need to make some minor adjustments when playing it back, but the 24 bit version will also help broaden the soundscape.
The first set is quite enjoyable with a rockin' Loose Lucy and ends with a strong Let It Grow> Don't Ease.
Set II is where the magic really starts to happen. They open up with a majestic and lush Eyes with plenty of Phil and Jerry really laying it down, and this lands at a beautiful and heartfelt reading of Looks Like Rain, Bob's voice is a unusually raspy, as he did have that vocal nodes surgery soon after this run. Way to Go Home has a minor volume glitch and is warmly received.
Truckin' starts a great race to the finish and features tight playing and a perfect climax. The drums are really awesome this night with exceptional beam playing by Mickey and with Bralove getting in on the act too.
The Post drumz end is a complete barn burner as they throw it down big time.
Rain is a excellent encore, and in this reviewers opinion the best Beatles cover they ever played.
If you could post some more FOBs in 24 bit it would be greatly appreciated.
Subject: This sure sounds good but, is the date correct?
But it appears to be 05-25-1993.
